There, a digital share can be generated for each entry (so-called “share token”) and stored and stored either in your own internet browser or on your own hard drive (technically speaking: “self-custody”). The advantage is that there is no need for a bank (technically speaking: “third-party custody”) and there are therefore no deposit management fees for the shareholders.

  • If the share is digital, how is the price, i.e. issue price, defined. Do you need an official rating for this or can the company define this itself?
    In the case of a capital increase, i.e. the first issue of a share, the company defines the issue price. This may differ from the nominal value, depending on the company value below which the company intends to place this issue (technically: the so-called “premium”). The issue price/enterprise value is communicated in the issue prospectus. For a public issue via daura, we require that it has been audited by an independent party (e.g. by our partner BDO). After this issue, the market of buyers and sellers determines the price of a share. Where the company has a certain influence is the annual determination of the tax value, which in the future can be published by the company on daura so that shareholders can report this to the tax authorities in their tax documents.
